Led Zeppelin back in the studio
Led Zeppelin could be on the brink of a 10th studio album after musicians Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham said they had been working on new songs.
Drummer Bonham told a radio station in Detroit that the new material may be recorded but added there was “lots of politics” to sort out first.
The three band members have been meeting to work on new ideas since Led Zeppelin’s one-off reunion show last December.
But lead singer Robert Plant has not been involved in any of the sessions, Bonham told the radio station.
He said: “At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material.
“When I get there [in the studio] I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it.
“Whatever it ends up as, to ever get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me. It’s my life. It’s what I’ve dreamed about doing.”
He added: “Lots of politics [would need to] get ironed out [before an album could be made].”
Led Zeppelin played their first concert in 19 years, in front of nearly 20,000 fans, at London’s 02 arena in December.
Their two-hour set opened with Good Times Bad Times – the first track of their debut album.
Original band members Page, Plant and Jones were joined on stage by Jason Bonham – the son of their late drummer John.
Page recently performed Whole Lotta Love at the London Olympic handover ceremony in Beijing. The song was sung by X Factor winner Leona Lewis.
